Soccer Team Arranges Game With Wolfendens to Fill In an Idle Date

Forced to cancel the home game scheduled with Brooklyn F. C., the Bethlehem Steel soccer team will not be idle this weekend, a condition that would have materialized if left entirely to the schedule makers of the league.

Learning that no other league club had been provided to replace Brooklyn F. C., the latter to meet Indiana Flooring in a replay of the National Cup, the local management got busy and arranged an exhibition game with Wolfenden Shore of Philadelphia, to be played in that city on Saturday afternoon.

Can Play a Good Game

Regardless of the fact that the Steelmen are reputed much stronger than their Philadelphia rivals, Wolfenden Shore generally gives the Steel Workers a hard match. Bethlehem will take its original eleven to Philadelphia, including Archie Stark, the league leading goal scorer.

Believing that a weekend of idleness would have a bad effect on the team, especially at this stage of the league and cup competition, the management left nothing undone to make the game possible. Somehow or other Wolfenden Shore usually breaks in on the Bethlehem schedule during the season and this was the first and probably the only opportunity the Steelmen would have to make the game possible.
